That looks like a re-worked version of the Mitsu Avenger from the 90s, not feeling that.

That and really why would Chrysler open themselves up to critique that is certain to say, "Chrysler is now Copying dated looking GM designs!"

The plan going forward......who knows?.... but:

As much as older Charger fans might like to see a 2 door........ I wouldn't bet on it.

Dodge market share over all is too small to justify more than one two door option. The Challenger is that car......the Charger is already ESTABLISHED as your 4 door car choice. I wouldn't look for this to change. As much as I too would prefer it.......I'd be SHOCKED if they did it.

Well stated...my thoughts exactly. I have a '16 as well.

I doubt FCA does much of anything for the next two or three years as long as Challenger sales are going up instead of down.

Why? Challenger has taken the sales lead over Camero and Mustang by adding bells whistles and HP. Be careful of redesigns, look what it did for Camero.

It's been 10 years, and sales are holding steady.

Until Ford/Chevy come out with something that doesn't look like re-heated puke, and can seat 4 people comfortably, it's probably no going anywhere. I predict another refresh, possibly next year, followed by another 4-5 years until FCA is financially comfortable enough to release a new chassis.

Sometimes you fix what's not broken and shoot yourself in the foot in the process.

I agree, dodge most likely wont change a thing for the time being, except to bump around features, engines and what not.
It also seems that most of these websites that try to shove out "sneak n peek" news "no one else has yet", are almost always 100% speculative at best and little on actual industry insider facts. Ive learned not to get exited until dodge actually releases a teaser vid or announcment..till then Ill drive my 15 like I stole it

It's the spot Dodge is in right now. They know it's a heavy, dated platform, and could do with an overhaul. But that's very expensive to do, and "SUVs" (tall ugly cars) are the hot seller at the moment so that's what FCA is investing in. They've also learned that they can conquer sales from the Camaro and Mustang simply by sitting back and letting those cars get worse and worse with each redesign. It's easy profit. So as long as the Challenger and Charger are competitive in their leagues, which they are, it's not an urgent priority to change them.

As much as I'd like to see a lighter, stiffer platform to keep our cars at the top, I can't deny why they would leave them the same for the time being.
